Hg2(NO3)2 (aq) + NaCl (aq) → Hg2Cl2 (s) + NaNO3 (aq)
Hg2(NO3)2 (aq) → Hg22+ (aq) + NO3- (aq)
NaCl (aq) → Na+ (aq) + Cl- (aq)
NaNO3 (aq) → Na+ (aq) + NO3- (aq)
Mercury(I) ions (Hg22+) can be removed from solution by precipitation with Cl–. Suppose that a solution contains aqueous Hg2(NO3)2.
Write net ionic equation to show the reaction of aqueous Hg2(NO3)2 with aqueous sodium chloride to form solid Hg2Cl2 and aqueous sodium nitrate.
